I live and work in the Southwest and blowing dust is the norm. Switching lenses often means dust on the sensor and hours of photoshoping it out of your pictures. Use this to save some time and remove the dust before you take the picture. Takes less than a minute...
I would recommend this for any novice out there and also recommend doing your research on the problems you can cause if you mess up.. Most camera manufacturers and salesmen will tell you to send your camera of to have the sensor cleaned. If it's only a small particle of dust, spend the money you would have to send it off and buy the Arctic Butterfly SL-788.
This is when I decided to buy the Arctic Butterfly. It comes in a padded plastic case - the pen itself is very simple, just a rotating fine brush and a three-way switch for off, lamp turn on, and to rotate the brush. A simple 1.2 V AAA battery is missing in the package - for the price of this tool it wouldn't hurt to at least include a battery! The Arctic Butterfly comes without a manual, I recommend watching the video of how to use it correctly first before doing anything:
The rotation of the brush fibers charge them electrostatically which adsorbs the dust from the sensor filter. As described in the video, carefully move the brush horizontally in one direction. Try to avoid touching the brush fibers with the case surrounding the filter. The small LED lamp is very useful here to light the space on the filter plane. Then remove the brush, hold the pen away from the camera and rotate the brush for a bit. I recommend repeating the procedure especially on the larger full frame sensors to capture particles on the top and the bottom of the sensor filter. I tested the quality of cleaning by taking a photo at a small aperture (f/16 for example) and review the RAW file on a PC screen. Dust appears as small dark dots. After my cleaning with the Arctic Butterfly I did not see any visible dust left on my sensor filter. I used the same cleaning procedure on my other tow regular DSLRs with the same outcome - sensors were very clean afterwards. It is a quick and easy process which made this tool worthwhile to have.
I only removed a star from the maximum rating of this product since I find it a bit overpriced, doesn't come with a simple AAA battery to get it started, and without a written manual. Minor issues when comnpared to the main purpose, the excellent dry-cleaning process.
First, it is expensive, but one can justify the cost given what it may cost to take your camera to a service shop for sensor cleaning, but forget shopping around in getting any kind of discount. The company tightly controls its distributors' retail pricing. While it has had a monopoly, such a retail price maintenance policy is inviting competition, which is starting to emerge. But, second, and this is my greatest gripe, at least the first model turned out to be surprisingly battery corrosive fragile. When I needed it while traveling, I discovered one of the supplied batteries had mild corrosion which not only shut the unit down but destroyed the entire electrical circuit. I tried cleaning out the corrosion, which was apparently not extensive, but the unit had become one dead puppy.
I ended up buying another one. Like the last one, it works like a charm. But I now keep the battery outside of the unit, since I can't afford buying a third unit at current prices. In short, most people will be very happy with this product, but I strongly recommend storing the unit with the battery kept outside until needed.
If you have one or two pieces of dust this may be the solution to try first. It has worked for others as documented here. It didn't work for me. I used it once, twice, and then kept going ... trying to get rid of "Dust" or "something" stuck on my sensor (even after 10 wet swipes it is still there). Anyways, after about two tries I must have smeared the sensor. This can occur if the brush even slightly bumps the surrounding sensor box or anything else on the way when being inserted through the camera carefully to the sensor. It looked like dirt and possibly scratches (were streaks) on the sensor when I took a sky picture at lowest aperture (highest F number). My heart sank and my stomach felt sick. I thought I messed up my sensor somehow. Did an abrasive piece of dirt or sand get in? What did that brush do to my beloved sensor?
Turns out, the brush didn't do anything. Didn't scratch my sensor. Didn't clean my sensor. It smeared my sensor with some type of dirt or grease and made it look horrible. I couldn't see it on the brush, but it was on my sensor. I was trying to clean some dust off the sensor for routine maintenance and was leaving to go out-of-town the next day and needed my camera. Luckily a local "professional" camera shop could clean my sensor the next morning no problem before I left. Drop it off and pick it up in an hour. Only will cost $100 + . Well, in a hurry to get on the road and wanting to take my beloved D90, I let them clean the smudges and dirt out. I did not have a wet kit, never cleaned it before and didn't have time to learn.
The camera shop did a great job cleaning the smudges and streaks out of the sensor. Trouble is, there was more dirt and dust in the camera then when I started. "There is no warranty, we did the best we could, and you could have changed lenses in the wind blah blah" I was told. Never again! I came home from said trip, and ordered a wet kit (sensor swabs and Eclipse from photographic solutions). I have used and tested it on my D40 which was never cleaned and had about 20 or so dust specks. After two swipes of wet swabs, it was perfect. After the D40 preliminary tests, I Used the wet swabs on the D90. Did not get it as perfect as I wanted, but close enough for now (after too many swipes lol). I did use the artic brush a few times to help intimidate a couple fibers and specks off of the sensor. Thus I had to give it a few stars for that.
I deducted the two stars because the brush didn't remove all my dust, it smeared my sensor (be VERY careful), and it is way expensive. I think the companies that sell camera cleaning supplies are making billions on stuff like this and sensor swabs (almost $40 for a box of 12)!! I have since cleaned my brush in some 91% pure rubbing alcohol to remove any possible contaminants, we'll see how that works. I personally wouldn't recommend this brush. However you may wish to use the brush if you find the need to try and remove one piece of dust that is bugging you or you want to complement your cleaning arsenal with all the expensive tools. Now that I do own it, it has come in handy a few times when I needed to kind of swipe a piece of dust or fiber off the sensor before or after wet cleaning... hence I think it deserves maybe three stars. Order and use it at your own risk.
